decision to switch games as the tragic events were unfolding simply because of the coincidence of his name. in that moment it felt right to all parties. it is a shame even a topic of conversation, play-by-play for football game, has become an issue. lee, an asian american sportscaster was going to call the game in charlottesville but the network now feels his name will be too offensive for viewers. earlier this month violence broke out at a white nationalists protest in charlottesville opposing the removal of a statue of robert e lee, confederate general, a driver rammed his car into a crowd of counter protesters killing one woman and injuring a dozen others. fox sports radio host clay travis who first broke the story says espn should have never taken lee off the game. >> it is a sign of how ridiculous and absurd this society has become that they made the decision that it was the right move to do this as opposed to just allowing people

american hands, american labor. the democrats are going to find a way to obstruct. if they do remember they are stopping you from getting a massive tax cut. >> reporter: that will require congress. something interesting happening this morning. the top of the capital, that light is the convener session light and it is only on when the senate or house or senate are in session. not sure why the light is turned on. maybe a call to the architect of the capitol to find out. these lights are always on but this one means session is in. >> maybe they are doing secret work. what are the chances of that? >> reporter: nothing would surprise me anymore. heather: appreciate it. donald trump ending his rally in phoenix with a call to unite as patriots and americans.
a powerful move according -- johnny joey jones joins us live. an honor to have you with us. we were just discussing our thoughts about the president's speech, i love it when he is so patriotic and tries to pull all people together, don't know how anyone can feel that way. >> by the end of the speech you feel a sense of unity through believing in this country. i get so excited when i talk about this country because so passionate about it. i don't know if anyone knows how much i love this country, back to where i come today, if anybody can live and the speech last night with mitch mcconnell, donald trump knows more than anyone what he is trying to accomplish. i think he did it. he was speaking to his base. in doing so he was speaking to the rest of the country as well. heather: you thought he went off
message a little bit. >> if i'm completely honest i am sitting there trying to watch it objectively as a veteran wanting to know more about the afghan speech, wanting to know our plan for north korea and everything going on. i don't need 30 minutes of how horrible the media and john mccain are. i get it, i get the frustration but close the book on that and march forward. as a marine i learned to adapt and overcome but i am not going to second-guess his political tactics. he put him in the white house when no one said it could happen and i was excited to hear a lot of things in the speech especially when he started talking about what he is doing for veterans affairs. we can't call it a victory yet and i don't think we can say things are better but believing in something goes so far in this country if you get enough people to believe in something, administer the va to believe in the mission you can change.
heather: how do you do that when there are not a lot of people speaking in favor of him which is why we hear him defending himself so much. >> the va specifically, that is a mission bigger than any one person or administration, 22 million americans, veterans that served this country and deserve something in return, i believe good people work at the va. i inherently don't trust bureaucrats in government but the people that take your blood pressure and and ask your healthcare every day need to know people believe in them so they will be motivated about their job and wants to do it. heather: i want your comment and what the president had to say about afghanistan, you were in afghanistan as a bomb technician, lost your legs, what do you think? >> an amazing job explaining the difference in tactics, how we are going to do the day-to-day, what our goals are. the men and women fighting this
battle are at a loss of what is the actual mission, a difference between an 8-year-old putting a bomb in the ground, and in 18-year-old jumping on a plane and taking the building down in a foreign country. we quit looking at them that way, quit making that discernment on people reacting to us being there as opposed to people who might do us harm when we are not there and we have to draw the line and understand it better. if you're in a village one day a week the taliban is there the other six. a troop surge has been effective and i don't want to know any amount of troops are off the table. that is what it takes to get the job done. heather: thank you for joining us. thank you for your service. rob: confederate monument decapitated in a cemetery, vandals ripped off and stole the head from the soldier statue at

rob: the navy planning to relieve the 3-star admiral in charge of the seventh fleet after four accidents in the pacific so what exactly is going on with our ships? a big question and an important one. here to weigh in, author of the new terrorism, how to fight it and defeated and former deputy secretary of the u.s. army, van hicks, thanks for coming on this morning. let's start right here. a lot of people thought for a minute or two this could have been a cyber attack on these ships. the navy has pretty much ruled that out but now they are saying it could be something involving training. how do they explain this many issues? >> a couple years ago the chinese stole the records of americans, took months to find that out. the chief of naval operations tweeted out investigations will
exclude all possibilities and that includes a cybertech. i talked to folks i trust with av backgrounds and other backgrounds, most think it is likely training but a cyberattack is a possibility. don't forget iran hacked into the program in 2013. they had some challenges but what this should remind us of is cyberwarfare is the fifth dimension of warfare after land, sea, air and space. the most obligated to carry challenge america ever faced that we as a nation are most unprepared for. rob: let's go back to what likely caused this. if it is a training issue, what is to blame? lack of resources the military has had in the last eight years? a lot of people say was decimated by underfunding, is that to blame?
>> last year the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff basically said the military was at all time low in terms of readiness. when you talk about ships or the synchronization of the battlefield, so much information technology, communications involved, it is extremely complicated and even more so. with the new systems they are vulnerable. the gao came out with a report in 2015 saying aircraft were vulnerable to cyberattacks. rob: you watch the progression of war, started with knives and bows and arrows, then guns and missiles and at this point it went atomic and we are getting to the point where computers are the new warfare. how critical that you can shut down an entire entity with a computer now. that is the next step where we
need to be. >> whoever wins the cyberwar will have a hand in the next military conflict no question. rob: we appreciate your time. heather: time to check in with what is coming up on "fox and friends". rob: you are in louisville having breakfast yet again. you need to watch those calories and pancakes every morning. >> reporter: no truer words were ever said. in louisville, kentucky, in louisville, what is interesting about this county and jefferson, it went hard-core for hillary clinton but there is a county right near us that went hard for donald trump so we will talk to people here about issues that matter, the afghanistan potential surge, what is going on with the monuments and the president's speech last night and martha maccallum later

him. when you give someone a see this is not the worst thing in the world. people are waiting for more and a lot of the rest of the speech didn't win them over. heather: donald trump saying sheriff joe arpaio is going to be just fine. >> was sheriff joe convicted for doing his job? he should have had a jury but i will make a prediction, i think he is going to be just fine. >> republicans gave him an egg, independents and democrat gave him a d-. a lot of folks out of left field isn't what they wanted to hear him talking about, they wanted to him talk about unifying the country moving things forward, they want to hear about tax reform and healthcare, but let's get things done. this is something people didn't
necessarily respond to. independents have been in lockstep with republicans for almost two years. independents in lockstep with democrats, a big divided you feel it. heather: donald trump saying americans share one destiny. >> americans share one planet, one home and one glorious destiny. we live according to the same law, raised our children by the same values and we are all named by the same almighty god. >> surprises me, i am shocked. >> gave it to see, republicans gave it and a. overall they want to hear more consistent strength from the president, messages of unity. >> had it any afghanistan
speech, following charlottesville the some people say he didn't do it soon enough and he has had this unity message but people just refusing to hear it? >> he has had some of that message except it has been buried underneath on many sides, buried underneath i can't do anything right. i said it already, it is the media's falls, people are tired of that, they want him to do the right thing, stay on course and keep going forward on the things that matter most to the american people, tax reform, healthcare, they want to hear us coming together. it wasn't that these were bad when talking about messages but they want to hear more of it, less of the media attacks, less of this i am defensive, i'm doing great things no one is paying attention to, they want to hear him being donald trump in the rallies being exciting about on his heels defending himself. heather: the you have grades from republicans that were ands.
